The Secret Pond Nice France

We live near Nice France. We get very little rain here . It’s amazing what happens when you create a small pond in an old Pine Forest. The pond is so busy it’s triggering 100 cam videos a day !!! I take water to the pond every three or four days because there is no natural water supply , it’s a desert here in the summer. There is a plethora of wild birds , residents and migrators using the pond, animals and mammals. We’ve had a Cuckoo, a Semi Collared Fly Catcher and a Wryneck visiting on migration. We now have a Foxa Stone Marten and in the summer we’ve had Wild Boars . Unbelievable, very very happy for such a small creation to have such an impact. Small changes can make a huge difference.
